: deal in reality, a plus .% unemployment under obama's policies you support. 44 straight months. the last three months less jobs created in september than august, less in august than in july. this economy is not moving forward. people have given up even looking for work. we have trillion dollar a year deficit. the deficit -- the debt from 10 to $16 trillion under obama. when is enough enough? i believe america knows enough is enough on november 6. >> we're going to get to deficits and taxes, too, but i think that kc has a local question that is quite important. >> next question goes to the congresswoman, a topic you often because. the air reserve station is the largest employer in the county. if a budget deal in congress isn't reached by january, could this threaten the future of the basic? again with less funding to go around, is it realistic to continue the current operation at the basic? hochul: absolutely, and that is what has him of the house armed services committee i had the opportunity work with republicans and democrats and have an amendment passed not just by the commi
supporting and abroad you have with obama and our unemployment rate and with the debt, why do you still supporting president obama for reelection so we can afford more years of failed policy with the unemployment stuck at 8% and trillion dollars deficits? i think the viewers would like to hear why it is you are supporting president obama. hochul: first, my answer to this, unlike you, chris, i don't believe either party has all the right answers. i won't say in congress i only support one party. there are concepts and policies i support with president obama like standing with the middle-class but i voted for middle-class tax cuts so they are no longer held hostage. you're willing to join majority and hold him hostage and not giving it should assurance. i want him to have that i want a farm bill passed so our farmers now delayed olympic i want to stand with our seniors and make sure that we don't balance the budget on their backs and break the promise to medicare we had to i believe mitt romney has ideas as well. i'm not so my way or the highway that i can't look at people objective
obama for the mounting national debt and they say the unemployment rate, 7.8%, is unacceptably high. >> the latest poll suggests the candidates are running close, but they were taken before the storm hit shore. earlier i spoke with nhk world's nishikawa on obama's successes and his failures. mishiko the president is not the first president, obviously, to promise change. but he certainly made that word stick. how do voters think he has done? >> right. well, obama did change a number of things, and not the least of which is, of course, health care reform. presidents on both sides of the aisle have tried before him and failed and he ended the war in iraq and he passed the stimulus among a number of other financial initiatives. some experts say he was perhaps too ambitious. >> coming in to his administration was to really change the course of foreign policy and economic policy that the administration had been following, and he was elected on that mandate. but it was again, difficult for him to achieve that -- that change. partly because the problem is so huge that you can't really chang
the unemployment rate up 8%. that is one obama doesn't want is an eight next to the unemployment number. melissa: there were 759,000 people magically found a job but didn't show up on payrolls. i wasn't sure how that happened. i want to get to your point. >> nobody knows. melissa: because it is so fantastic. it talks all about fairness, which i love because that is such a loaded phrase in america right now. i'm glad you honed in on that because one of the reasons it really bothers me is, who decides what is fair? it is such a subject testify word. i don't really want politicians in washington deciding what's fair. i don't necessarily think, they're not my moral gauge. >> not your moral compass. well, they shouldn't be. the reason i wrote the book because we knew that months and months before the election the fundamental theme of obama was going to be class division and class warfare and this whole fairness theme. the point of the book, i don't want to ruin the conclusion, the ending but really is free enterprise system as you know, melissa, it is one that creates the system, that creates the mos
unemployment rate for september, 5.7%. president obama won the state by a large margin in 2008 with 9%. neil levesque is the executive director of the new hampshire institute of politics, joining us this morning from manchester. let's begin with top issues for new hampshire voters. guest: good morning from new hampshire. before i start, i want to thank c-span and congratulate c-span radio on 15 great years being on the air. it has been a very valuable resource for some of us in civics. a great resource. in new hampshire, we are a swing states. four electoral votes. it sounds like a small number, with 538, but if al gore had won those of for your votes, he would become president. so they are very important. this state is a tossup. the issues are little different in new hampshire than across the country. unlike a state like nevada and has a higher unemployment rate, and mentors at 5.7%, which is a little higher than it has been all summer, this means jobs and the economy is an issue that is certainly front and center ended is the number-one issue, but it may not bring home as much as other iss
on their economic policies. i think romney is far, far better than obama, obama has made a huge mistake over the last 3 years. lou: and friday, our last reading on unemployment. i don't know -- i don't know if anyone pays attention to these numbers. >> i do. lou: there is some credibility gap i believe. but give us your thoughts. >> you know, numbers have been horrible for the last 36 months, there has been no real recovery in the u.s. we barely kept up with population growth. if the participation rate had not fallen as sharply as we had, unemployment would still be in 12% range. a lot of people out there working, are working but part time instead of full time look they would like. it cannot continue this way very long. this is a tragic is, if you worry about people in the storm you do, you have to worry about theme without jobs for last 4 or 5 years, who lost ability to ever get back in the labor force, it is a tragic loss of a press our natural -- precious natural resource, i am at odds with what should be done. lou: we're all sfrufl frustratey that. very few people talk about this that i
but nine of the last ten show obama ahead, that is becomes more meaningful. >> the unemployment rate has dipped down below eight percent in 1-b ls accounting yet there are also a range of the statistical evidence nobody has been elected reelected if in the previous four years the unemployment rate was over eight percent. does that mean anything to you? >> well, you had fdr reelected, back in mean 36 with an unemployment rate near 13 percent and the reason why is the trajectory had been favorable, because it had been 20 percent, so. >> rose: so the exception is where i the trajectory? >> and the other thing is we are on the one hand, you are not that far from some allowing presidents but not that far there reagan where unemployment was in the low to mid seven when voters went to the polls in 1984 and he didn't squeak out a win over walter mondale and won by 18 points. >> rose: there is a premium in today's world for the ability to assess the data that is coming in. >> yeah, and you see this everywhere from sports to technology, to every other field, and people often make mistakes, we ar
. right now it's the unemployment rate is 5.7% and president obama won the state into thousand eight with 9%. the executive director of the institute -- he is joining us from manchester. let's begin with tough issues for new hampshire voters. >> before i get started, i wanted to thank c-span and congratulate them on 15 years being on the air. it has been a very new book valuable resources -- a very valuable resource. we are a swing states. four electoral votes. it sounds like a small number but if al gore had won the four votes, he would have become president. they are very important. this state right to know is a tossup. the issues are different than it would be across the country. unlike nevada, that has a higher unemployment rate. ron sommer, it was 5.2%. -- and like summer, it was 5.2%. it is the number one issue but ring home like other issues. right now, we are seeing that the candidates are coming into, particularly the president has coming into the seacoast area. towns like rochester, cities like rochester are areas that are indicative of what may happen in the election. the
unemployment. more women in poverty than ever before. we may have made it through president obama's first term. it's our children who can't afford a second. >> cenk: that's fascinating because, in fact, president obama did not take away the work standard. in fact, he was actually agreeing to a request by republican governors to tighten the working standards for welfare to work. that's an absolute lie! but they don't care. they do it all the time. in fact, everybody's gotten so used to it but they think well, that's just the way things are. mitt romney, for example says that president obama doubled the deficit. not remotely true. he was headed at $1.2 trillion deficit, now a $1.1 trillion deficit. it is less. it is a god damn lie! but the rest of the media goes i can't do that. i can't tell the american people reality. here's what i'm worried about. i'm worried about that we're in an iraq kind of situation here. what do i mean by that? before the iraq war the republicans kept insinuating oh, my, saddam hussein ira
is in the ballpark but i go by the polling averages, bill. polling averages in ohio show obama up by 2 points which means it's very close. let's see what the jobs number is on friday. what's the unemployment report the friday before the tuesday election? >> bill: i see romney with momentum in that state right now. i think romney -- >> -- he certainly has support among independence. >> bill: right. >> i think in those plus -- obama plus four polls, bill, as we have talked about, they had a party identification advantage of democrats. >> bill: i don't believe that i think rasmussen is on it i think romney is up by a little right now. okay, now, you have a fascinating race and real quick now, david, in massachusetts between scott brown, the incumbent republic senator and elizabeth warren, the liberal democratic challenger. you have the race to warren by 7, the "boston globe" polling in the same period of time just about the same likely voters has it tied. you say. >> we have been different before. suffolk has been different than the conventional polling. i stick by the number. i think what you are see
. with the small state up in the northeast corner holding 4 electoral votes. right now its unemployment rathe 5.7%. and president obama won this state by a large margin back in 2008 with 9%. let's begin with top issues for new hampshire voters. guest: good morning. and before i get started i want to thank c-span and c-span radio on 15 years being on the year. it's been a very valuable resource for some of us. up here in new hampshire we are a swing state four electoral votes. it sound like a small number. but if al gore had won the four votes he would have become president. so they are very important and this state right now is a toss up. the issues are a little bit different here in new hampshire than they would be across the country. unlike a state like nevada that has a higher unemployment rate, new hampshire is at 5.7%. that's higher than it was all summer around 5.2%. this means that jobs and the economy is an issue that is front and center and it is the number one issue but it may not ring home as much as other issues. host: what areas of new hampshire are the swing areas of that state hi
be losing some momentum as president obama responds to sandy's destruction. and of course we're just two days away from october's critical unemployment number. varney & company starts right now. okay. so right now you're looking at the board here. these are the dow 30 stocks as neil cavuto called it the jeopardy board. and home depot as you might imagine at the top doing the best so far. insurance companies under a a little bit of pressure, not necessarily a lot, but the markets opened slightly to the upside. we are back in business here on fox business. the stock market is open. by the way, stuart is off today in previously scheduled assignment. but i have a great company for you today. elizabeth macdonald is back and former clinton advisor doug schoen is also here. nicole petallides back on the floor of the new york stock exchange. happy to see you down there nicole. we're going to start with you. home depot obviously leading the way. other than the storm, anything else going on with it? nicole: let's take a look at home depot. home depot and lowe's been doing very well today. home dep
up being what it's always been about, obama's long-term record on the economy. >> greta: a.b.? >> actually, i disagree. i don't think it's going to swing the election. i think that it would -- if it goes up or down, the unemployment number, it either reinforces romney's argument or the president's, and it actually could make the difference between a non-committed voter who doesn't like either of them and is very disappointed saying i really have to do -- i have to get in the car, i have to vote for mitt romney, we have to turn this thing around or maybe the president's right and he's got us on the right track. it really actually could affect turnout from some critical areas, some margins that could help one or the other, depending on whether or not it swings up or down, not if it says the same. >> greta: i think if it goes up or down, it's like lighter fluid to either of the campaigns based on the numbers. i'll take the last word on that topic. panel, thank you. we're going to see you again in our second hour of on the record, so don't go away. get your coffee. that starts
: the unemployment rate across nevada, nearly 12%, the nation's highest, but polls here consistently show obama up by a point or two. zombies crawling through reno, driving their own agenda. what is on the zombie agenda this week. >> the zombie agenda, lots of butchering, slicing and dicing of the budget. >> reporter: she's a zombie for romney but most of the undead have otherening things on their minds. how many of you are undecided voters? >> hey! >> reporter: it is all ant the brains. now we know where the undecided voters are. >> thank you, miguel. right now it is a roll of the dice in the battleground state of nevada. the final stop on the tour takes him to vegas. we'll check in with him on friday. >> i think he'll be on stage with celine dion or something. he is the best. >>> ahead, some must-see video of super storm sandy's extraordinary might and wrath. just wait until you see what happened to many massive tree. you will not believe it. you're watching "early start." that's true. ...but you still have to go to the gym. ♪ the one and only, cheerios hand-carved on the side of a cliff is th
's something called the misery index which is the inflation index plus the unemployment rate. if that goes up during a president's first term, he tends to get kicked out, and it's gone up, it's gone up substantially during president obama's first term, and that would suggest if you believe the historical numbers that he's toast. that doesn't necessarily fit with the polls, but that does seem to be what -- megyn: i don't have the stat in front of me, but no president's been reelected in several decades with an unemployment rate -- since fdr, if it's over 8, so 8% is a psychological, and to some extent historical barrier. >> absolutely. and it was a big deal that it ticked down to 7.8% last time, especially because it had been over 8. that's what made a lot of people skeptical. you know, it raised a lot of questions. but at the same time, you know, the folks at the labor department, you know, they're nonpartisan folks. they're all government employees. megyn: they are. so we can trust them? because here, the reason i ask you is because the numbers seem to change, anecdotally this is a news anch
obama three to five points ahead and internals look a lot like this. we discussed it ad nauseam on the air, the unemployment rate is way below the national average and people have a sense of economic optimism in the state that is greater. >> we're less than a week out. he's maintaining a five-point lead not only in this poll. a five-point lead and also one of the more accurate polls. you know, at some point romney's people telling you and you and me and everybody, oh, don't believe the media polls. they have all of the figures wrong. our internals show we're tied. at some point that just doesn't wash. they have to win michigan or pennsylvania or minnesota. >> that's right. and look at the way they're behaving in ohio with the ad that they put on, this whole thing about chrysler and jeep. they're behaving -- there's an element of apparent desperation on their part. they seem to be throwing a lot of stuff at the wall in ohio which suggests a certain amount of if not desperation they have a sense that they're losing there. >> mark, you look at the quinnipiac poll this morning and y
not get unemployment below 5% that he should not be reelected. i think that is the barometer that people are looking at president obama. we have soaring residents -- rhetoric and great expectations for this president. in the first couple of months in office after the stimulus, the president took his eye off the ball. these are worrying about cold warming conventions in sweden. he started working about card check. and then doing health care, all very partisan issue. when we were looking at our worst economic scenario since the great depression, our president and his administration was focused elsewhere. if we're going to rewind the tape and use the 47% comments, we should use the 5% comment. that is the most relevant comment in americans' lives today, which is, let's get the american economy moving. host: john hickok lipper, a a a former democrat and former denver mayor has high approval. are you worried about that? guest: governor hickenlooper is wildly popular. he has ratings rival in former gov. bill owens. what you see in the west as far as successful politicians, which are those that
the 787 billion dollar stimulus bill, we have 43 months of the worst unemployment since the great depression. deficits. we were promised that the deficits would be cut in half, and they've been tripled. we are off by a factor of six. energy, the obama-mccaskill record, the funding of solyndra, the epa, given the power to shut down the coal industrial, and, of course, stopping drilling in the keystone pipeline and gasoline prices doubled. health care? it's even worse. 71% of us in missouri voted against the government takeover of health care, and claire mccaskill, after that, voted to pass it. now, there's a reason for this record of failures, and that's because obama and mccaskill have a deep and abiding faith that big government is the solution to every problem. that's why they couldn't fulfill their records. now, claire's gone to washington, d.c., and she has brought us red tape and taxes and all kinds of bureaucracies and executive orders, and she doesn't understand that these big government solutions choke out freedom. now, what i would suggest is that you could bring me to wa
here they go again with their lies. >> announcer: if you want to know president obama's second term agenda, look at his first. gutted the work requirement for welfare. doubled the number of able-bodied adults without children on food stamps, record unemployment. more women in poverty than ever before. we may have made it through president obama's first term. it's our children who can't afford a second. >> cenk: that's fascinating because, in fact, president obama did not take away the work standard. in fact, he was actually agreeing to a request by republican governors to tighten the working standards for welfare to work. that's an absolute lie! but they don't care. they do it all the time. in fact, everybody's gotten so used to it but they think well, that's just the way things are. mitt romney, for example says that president obama doubled the deficit. not remotely true. he was headed at $1.2 trillion deficit, now a $1.1 trillion deficit. it is less. it is a god damn lie! but the rest of the media goes
